I've developed a localised pain about 2 to 3 inches above my ankle on the inside of my right leg only. It is a sharp pain which occurs when pressure is put on the leg or I push into my leg with a finger. It feels like an overuse injury. I am training for a marathon. I have not decreased my mileage yet but the pain is getting worse and having an effect on my training runs making them not much fun to complete. I am icing after running, using a compression bandage and taking Ibuprofen.
Due to the sheer amount of information available, im not sure what's wrong. Tendonitis, Shin Splints, general overuse, the new neutral shoes I bought a week ago. Although, I have pretty much ruled them out because the pain is only in my right leg, nothing wrong with the left.
I'm stumped and need advice on the best course of action. I'm thinking that if it doesn't get better soonish, because the race is in April I will need to see an injury specialist. Any advice would be great.
